Wikinews is a collection of wiki websites which present up-to-date, relevant, newsworthy and entertaining content; without bias, with content that is written by the volunteer Wikinews editors. A project of the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), all content is released under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License (CC-BY 2.5), which makes the Wikinews content perpetually available for free redistribution and use.
As of March 2013, Wikimedia Meta-Wiki indicates that there are 33 Wikinews versions in different languages, with the Serbian version being the largest with over 70,000 articles, followed by the English version just shy of 20,000 articles. New language versions are added when there is significant support for said language. Meta-Wiki historical article new language pre-launch documents the evolution of some of the various language versions of Wikinews, and Meta-Wiki requests for new languages illustrates the process for all Wikimedia Foundation projects. Just like the convention of other WMF projects such as Wikipedia, each Wikinews language version is a sub-domain under the Wikinews.org domain. The Japanese Wikinews, for example, is at https://ja.Wikinews.org.

The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' major wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being rolled out. Its most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.
